Fortunato ’17, Sahlberg ’17 Seek to Improve Biometric Technologies

Computer science majors Jason Fortunato ’17 and Linnea Sahlberg ’17 are attempting to improve upon expensive biometric technologies this summer through a research project titled Remote Functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy. Working under Stephen Harper Kirner Chair of Computer Science Stuart Hirshfield, their research is focused on the creation of relatively unintrusive alternatives to Near Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) equipment, utilizing lasers to operate remotely instead of the common skin-contact reliant systems of traditional equipment.  More ...

Marta Antoniv ’17 Probes Ring Structures and Applied Organic Chemistry

When Marta Antoniv ’17 explains her summer research, she pulls out a pencil and paper. Antoniv is working alongside Assistant Visiting Professor of Chemistry Daniel Griffith ’07 to help identify a novel method of synthesizing nitrogen-containing, seven-membered rings, a process which may aid researchers in developing pharmaceutical drugs. Thankfully, she provided an explanation.  More ...

Counting Crows

If prompted to identify animals that display high levels of intelligence, many people would probably name well-known exotic species, such as dolphins or chimps. However, one common species that many of us interact with every day may be among the most intelligent species on earth - crows. From tool-building and abstract thinking to complex social behavior, crows display intelligence to a degree that has been of great interest to scientists in recent years.  More ...

Jonah Boucher ’17 Explores Meromictic Green Lake Chemistry

Jonah Boucher ’17 is undertaking research this summer with a team of students under  Associate Professor of Biology Michael McCormick analyzing various chemical and microbiological properties of Green Lake in Onondaga County, N.Y. Green Lake is notable for its meromictic properties, meaning that it is separated into two major layers of water, one well-oxygenated and one anoxic, that do not mix, even after the passage of long periods of time.  More ...
